Here's the difference

Instapundit:
THE PRESS WANTS TO SHOW BODIES from Katrina. It didn't want to show bodies, or jumpers, on 9/11, for fear that doing so would inflame the public.

I can only conclude that this time around, the press thinks it's a good thing to inflame the public. What could the difference be?
Well, here's one difference: in the aftermath of Katrina, inflaming the public might lead to widespread dissatisfaction, deserved or not, with the response of the federal, state, and local governments to the disaster.

In the aftermath of 9/11, inflaming the public might have led to knuckle-dragging good ol' boys bashing in the heads of random Muslims, or anybody suitably dark-skinned.
